5150 number 4

September 26, 2011

Here we go
again…

I am much too dangerous
to be allowed
to roam the streets.
(in the eyes
of the state
of
California)
so they sign
the
5150
and they own me
for 72
hours.

Observation
extensive testing
a new regimen
of medications
for
my
brain.

Then
they let me out.

I don’t feel any more
safe
than I did
when they took me
in.

But
according to the psychiatric
hospital
I’m all better
now.

I don’t feel
all better
I just feel like
a zombie
with all of these
fucking
pills.

  1. I too have ridden the 5150 train one too many times. After reading some of your writing, I’m going to do something brash and ask you to contact me with a messaging SN, if you have one. I think I want to know you. Thanks for sharing.
